Still Quilting.......... from Sew Sunshine



I have been doing a few quilts in a QAL hosted by Homemade Emily Jane. It has been really fun to dig into my stash and see what I can come up with. 
My first one was inspired by this great rainbow gradation fabric. 
You can see some of the fabric here. 

and here!!! so fun. I used a very light celery green thread for most of the straight line quilting. 


Next up I was trying to think more baby boyish. 
 Okay ...pretty cool if you see that beam of light slanting down right to my quilt!!! Here is my ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 16 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 16

We are coming close to the end of our QAL and today's section will take a little time, a few hours, maybe less. Today I will show you how I completed the flying geese border. I really think it sets the quilt off nicely and is a fun way to finish it off. I love flying geese! I used 4 colors for my flying geese border. If you want to make it scrappier that's up to you. If you do you will need to make a total of 116 flying geese rectangles. The method ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 15 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 15

Whew, it's already day 15! Today we will work on noses... snowman noses. I pulled a fat quarter out of my fabric stash.... I had already cut into it from a previous project so it was more like a fat eighth. We will make 13 noses for our snowman blocks. In the pattern I have you do your noses using a fusible method using Heat N Bond fusible web. In this method you will trace all of your noses onto the paper side of the fusible web. Iron this onto the wrong side of your ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 11 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 11

Whew, it's already day 11! Happy Friday everyone! Doing a little quilting or stitching is a great way to kick off the coming weekend! Today's block strip is made up with scrappy triangle squares. The scrappier the better. It will take about half an hour to complete. While working on mine, I used all of the fat quarters I had set aside for this quilt excluding the fabric that I used for this hats 'top'. I love the scrappiness of this block and love how it ties all the colors together in one block ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 10 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 10

 
I hope that you are enjoying the snowman blocks so far. There's thirteen snowmen blocks all together. I tried to arrange the directions from easiest to hardest blocks. If you are new to quilting, this is a good skill builder for you. It's also a great stash buster if you are only pulling from your fabric stash to do this quilt. I am using a fat quarter bundle that I have been hoarding for a couple of years now. Today's block is a Flying Geese block, we are going to make 6 ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 9 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 9

Our blocks are coming along nicely and it's fun to see everyone's progress! Today's block is a twist on a flying geese block, Flying Geese Diamonds. I use four different colors for this strip giving the illusion of two toned diamonds. You can use whatever color fabrics you want or you can follow the quilt layout sheet and use colors as pictured. This is the first scrappy hat brim strip in a series of Flying Geese strips, there'll be a couple more.

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 8 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 8

Today's hat brim uses an hour glass block. A classic pieced block. We will use an easy technique to make our hour glass block without have to cut any separate triangles. Allow an hour for sewing time even though it may not take you very long to make this block. I hope that you are enjoying your sewing time every day. Just think, we are over half way thru with our snowman blocks. I really enjoy my quiet time spent in my sewing room., I usually listen to an audiobook as I sew. It's ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 7 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 7!

For todays block we will make a striped hat brim. It reminds me of a candy cane stripe and peppermint. I love stripes so this hat brim is one of my favorites. It won't take very long to make, I would allow a half an hour to complete today's block. I used a red and then the same white background fabric that I used for my pinwheel block. But you can pull any colors you want for your striped hat brim. Have fun with it! So go and grab a little snack to stash ...
